Oceania Laser Events
Following the creation of the Oceania Region by the International Laser Class Association in November 2016 there have been a number of initiatives starting with the setting up the Oceania Laser Class Association (OLCA).
The initial few years of the Oceania Region Championships have been combined with the Australian National Championships however in due course these events will be staged in other Countries of the Region. As well OLCA has plans for events and to develop the class in the Region. There is a new web site specifically for Oceania Laser events and information at http://oceania.laserinternational.org/ .
Australian based Laser builder PSA will provide up to 100 new Lasers for charter in the Region. Initially these will be deployed in Fiji for the Fiji Oceania Laser Masters event to be held at the Sofitel Resort Dunarau Island 13-19th October 2018. Entries are rolling in for this event and there is an event web site with links for charter, flight and accommodation package booking and entry as well as information about the event. It is at https://www.oceanialaserchamps.com/ .
Oceania Laser President Ken Hurling’s report posted on the OLCA web site outlines the events which are being planned for Oceania in the next few years. While the details are a little fluid the event list is extensive and growing.
